Enter Your Title Here

I’ve not had much to blog about lately. I’ve been running, wifeing, momming, stage managing, and breathing. That’s about sums it up. It’s been a little busy, but overall? Nothing to complain about.

I’m on the verge of being excited, because during my last few runs, I’ve been able to finish with an overall pace between 10:02 – 10:31! That is very fast for me, and I’m really hoping that I can make that my pace for the 10k on the 26th of this month. That would totally ROCK! (said with my tongue sticking out and my fingers making the “rock on” sign). For a long time I really felt that at 10-ish pace was just not in the cards for me, but it looks like (at least on the shorter distances) it just might be feasible, and that makes me happy. I’m not “fast” by any stretch of the imagination, but faster than I was and I’m good with that.

Sorry for the boring blog…. Back to the regularly scheduled laundry pile.

Keep on Keeping On!


Move on Down the Road…

Just checking in. It’s been a while since my last post, so I thought it was time to say something. I have just logged 160 miles since January. That leaves me a measly 845 miles to go (until I reach my goal of 1005 miles for the year). That means I have finished 16%… only 84% remains. I am really unsure if I will reach my goal, but I’m going to give it my best shot. When you crunch the numbers it looks like this:  I’ve been running for 2 1/2 months, which in turn breaks down to about 6.4% per month. So, If I have 9 1/2 months left I will only get another 60.8% in (which I think leaves me 7.2% shy). BUT, my mileage will also increase as the year goes on, so I’m still holding out hope (I know you wanted a math lesson today).

In other news, well, I really don’t have other news. Play practice starts on Saturday, so that will keep me busy. The show is Tom Sawyer (with our local kids theater) and I’m going to be the stage manager. It should be fun. Other than that life is pretty much normal. Home school is going well… at least the kids seem intelligent, Phil’s working, and I’m doing laundry. I do a lot of laundry (especially since I’ve started running). I still haven’t figured out why this family has to have all these clothes, but what are ya going to do? In Heaven there will be no more laundry…. that’s for sure. Hope you have a great weekend!
